of Jesus and we would like to pray honest Jesus praying would like to halt their prayer life of Jesus I welcome all Ozzie said I didn't like to recopy beat a lot of qualities that we will pray as Jesus prayed because we read he said we must pray cause he prayed you must have one I sent you what nice would conquer Oz you can't cut and he said also that we we need to follow easy to well so all their goal of our seminar is the form of the example of Jesus Christ but it is said in the book must have surprised that they use away some hope in all things and donkeys in their context of prayer life so that throughout life of Jesus is our module Jesus Christ was here not only need to die for us but also to leave as an example for us so his life is an example is death is for us the half life it's all of Christianity is about to follow the example of Jesus Christ as well so it comes to prayer out we are not in darkness we would don't say well what kind of prayer life that I should the example of Jesus Christ is clear we just need to learn to study about it and put it into practice so I'll try a no goal is that by tomorrow will indeed spawned a journey of prayer life of Jesus Christ will be rating on alone but we need to improve all the time these the same that they be guessable invisibles is there room for improvement we need always to the rules we need to cool all the time anxiety sanctification even though we have been praying I know I'll all of Osceola operating but we need to cool all the time the very moment we see we feel that we have arrived then that means the beginning of the decline of all personal walk with God 's only idea we grow into better okay yesterday we talk about big Steve to on said Chris unrest saying that it is in-house to be according to do will of God will was singing that one recently planned and the record of the prayers in the Bible often in Old Testament and the New Testament you seen this thing that their prayers were almost coincidentally on said positive only a few exceptions their negative arms is with exception but the positive ones that is the client unfortunately we don't have a picture baby often many times would pray and we don't have sold watches his only son we talked about that yesterday while you sit is that in the old days Old Testament New Testament and early church we we see we read about this but somehow we don't experience and we studied yesterday that the big screen nation is that about no waiting bill will of God to pray according to the will of God I just promised that you use is going to onset our prayers even pray according to use we'll I thought these that will help us not to fall into presumption so the idea used to know via window you see him get past many times we pray and then we say you could use it according to the will of God in the Old Testament and a Bible if they know the will of God it is reading this critical property as well to know first doing wheel of thought and get corners we need will will guide us what to ask and how to ask and we said yesterday that God delights the concept that kind of prayer because it is inspired by the Holy Spirit Gillers noted Lucy Christ grace and then we ask and that prayer will be on-site and we said no so that it is about friendship God as an offering we need to know on as if we know God is then we know he's going and we've we have that friendship liking for a new friendship we would know exactly almost one hundred percent UV a friend will say yes or no and yes we know is not if you ask something from a friend and if we know the thought you would you wish you will say no we will not ask even though we want it because we want to scallion thrown to pay all say no to your friends and doctors away on all window wrapped with God sometimes I see said yesterday we miss the point we make a mistake that means we are strongly we guess wrong that's why we are asked and then God said no not that one in us why we have some of our output has a unsaid we've been no one set because of gone nosebleed so we should what wall no one is doing beyond sent because we are not perfect you do know we all do we look on we made the lease is not going but after he's it should not be detained it should be a kind of exceptional thought is the point of view for just reached that then it would be all right because humans are also called music at least once when you are asked for the floor not on this list to be removed God said no that one might will use different my will is for you to Cadiz adopt is not according to my will shall pull somehow just did not exactly do what God wanted it sure you know all personal lives it may happen that way we may pray for something God will not say yes not that blood does not involve us after the long sophomore because you once asked will have picked but generally speaking we must know we sure do know that we don't thought because of the work of the Holy Spirit in us I thought these the guidance of the Holy Spirit so these one is somehow a long way will have a lot on sent the shortcuts sometimes you know them we think it is short but it is long when we would have a negative balance it is just lots and then think or say well if he dues your way of thought this fox but these one is along a long way you will have with you will have two to be close to God you'll have to keep you relationship with God you're not doing when of God we have to be friends of God I do not believe why Jim looked of time that you quite a logo education but these use the best solo to how fellow players on said you don't equalize oblasts his seriousness you know what woke we've got to listen to the voice of the Holy Spirit don't know all the beasts want you should we should are speech one we should not ask exactly I want prayer life will be so rewarding it do not digest of a couple few minutes no waiting user will we talked about that and then knowing the mind of God 's Holy Spirit will guide us I'm these days what do we I said yesterday I would like just to reduce again is that you have we keep an decision crisis object lesson page one hundred and twenty nine city if we keep the Lord Avenue before us allowing a walk constable out into thanksgiving and praise to him we shall have haunting of freshness in a lot religious life I walked Reyes will take the form of a conversation

yesterday with the word of God because you for what you mix our faith within what o'clock it would become strong do what a blog is one most likely software blocks debate the program that is built a new know a hot sell you went for it one of God keep on pointing to one of God as a result of these the mix of their fifth God can build faith I do one was like watering it would be one of God then that land will grow in CD but youth was half wall you've report file this is not computer then it would be spawned one thing that's why we have to be careful on what report do no one minds you know Oaxaca what we catch what we seek what do you see if you feel have lots of strong faith we need to God how Los Angeles because it God it was so communicate us with the licenses what we notch we need to block what we eat what we read what we listen if we keep on watching something that is not helping a lot faith to be strong don't expect to have strong free so we fly still be strong we need to be very selected items correct in what we put because like a company Dragon what about we want it would be process and it would be the all what do you want processed output don't expect attributes in our food that's something that we don't put it on log Gainesville division of full out save that watching some new so things like that but I'm taking the truth attended vision is a bot must find mayonnaise things are funny if we don't control these it would destroy all outlaw prayer life not time as it ought to ask them to pray because really you are already spend one oh two was watching two two visa wallabies sometimes they are but it comes Linda your time to spend with and that it cannot think the last sentence I have taken a stand I'm not against people watching but as far as ample and

well probably it is not the best thing for me maybe for someone knows but for me I will not because I want to spend more time on my knees I want to spend more time starting to one of God because I think the last time we obviously people so we need to my major lifetime we need to money time to be able to do this a lot time you stop already but tomorrow we will finish how to increase our faith will talk about a clock face this appropriate and a Bible talks about these how to increase philosophy I have just done half of all about faith so would like you not to muse that because I remember I would pray also tomorrow will have a season of prayer but let me just sum on a piece be careful of what you watch what you eat what to touch what to hear your sex and be generally self of your time so that you can spend time on your knees so that you can spend time of the Dean the word of God because they want golf cart use that software that can defeat the scene builds program that God does done
